Smiley, What makes your Dr think Fibro? There is more to fibro than just pain, as mentioned there are trigger points all over the body, you have to have a minimum of 18 out of 25 of these trigger points to be dx with it, along with over 6 months of pain. There is a difference between the 2 autoimmune syndromes. I have had fibro for over 18 years. Just like with gbs/cidp, there is no test for fibro or cure. Another way to look at fibro from a layman’s view, the muscle fibers are wavey when normal muscle fibers are smooth, this shortens the energy level and power that one gets out of the muscle. Check out the fms site, there is more detailed info, good info on it. Take care.
